The National Interdisciplinary Circular Economy Research (NICER) Programme includes plans for two rounds of collaborative research and development funding calls (totally £2.5m), delivered by Innovate UK, to enable further engagement of SMEs with the Circular Economy Centres. Round 1 will go live for applications in October this year for projects up to 12-months in duration (starting April 2022), project size £50-100k

The Centre for the Circular Chemical Economy is part of £30 million government investment, funded by UKRI with the aim to transform the UK chemical industry’s linear supply chain model into a fossil-independent, climate-positive and environmentally friendly circular economy.
